I defended TN in Lewes Crown Court on a charge of GBH. His defence was that he had to defend himself against a group of others confronting him, and punched once to help himself. After three days
of evidence, the Jury found in his favour and acquitted him.
I successfully defended XT in his trial at Brighton Magistrates Court on 12 September for speeding and failing to notify driver. He could not read and write and said
that he did not understand the letter that the police sent to him asking who had been driving when speeding. The Clerk asked me why I was there 'for speeding?' Reply - nothing is too unimportant,
and if it matters to an old client and his family, and they can't cope by themselves, then I turn out for them.
I defended TL in Southwark Crown Court over ten weeks - forty days. I led Justin Rivett from Warrens Law & Advocacy, Eastbourne, to whom I give my thanks and
The Police accused TL of defrauding clients in a solicitors firm to the tune of £900k, by draining clients money from client account into his pocket and the
pockets of his partner FD. He says that he did not know about what was happening. TL was convicted.
I was led by Simon Russell-Flint QC in the murder trial of NK at Lewes Crown Court. NK was accused of stalking and murdering his girlfriend. He denied the charge and
after a three week trial, was that he was convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment, with a tariff of 25 years.

'Dear Loretta, Steve and Paula
We just wanted to write and thank you for all you have done for N over the last 6 months or so. We know it was an uphill battle and you have truly
done your best for him.
You all have supported us through this nightmare and we won't ever forget your kindness to us especially these last few weeks.
Steve, your communication throughout the trial was exceptional and it will be strange not seeing you every day and getting back to 'normal' life.
With kind regards
T & H'
